Thunder Shirts for Dogs
Are you familiar with the ‘Thunder Shirt’? This is a tight fitting shirt that is made for both dogs and cats. When you put it on your dog it gives him the feeling of being held securely and tightly. It’s like wrapping a newborn in swaddling clothes. It gives the dog a sense of calm and protection. If your dog is afraid of thunder or has anxiety in general then he may do well with a thunder shirt. You can get them online and at some retail stores simply search your options online. Place the shirt on your dog when he is afraid and then talk with your dog and help distract him from that fear. He will soon associate the shirt with a feeling of calm so that if he’s wearing the shirt and you’re not home he will feel at ease.
